Much could be observed, praising a lot to me. For example, a new genre force and power of persuasion is breathed as in the conscious, explicit resource to the classic Hollywood melodrama, which degenerated into its home country for a long time to hollow, cynical façade. As the film itself has always reflected on popular commercial culture - and they have not condemned damn nor naively celebrates. Or how the film discreetly tells a political parable under the guise of a love story. In terms of craftsmanship, virtually every category of Tian mi, which was awarded nine Hong Kong Movie Awards in 1997 - and rightly so - could be positively mentioned. - Last but not least, the outstanding actors, especially "King of Canton-Pop", Leon Lai and (languishing!) Maggie Cheung - about which only I could talk about each page.
